  • 3 young South Asian males charged in CRA investigation Fraud

Investigators with the York Regional Police Financial Crimes Unit have charged three men from the City of Brampton in connection with a $10,000 Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) fraud.

Taranveer Singh 19, of Brampton, Ranveer Singh19, of Brampton, and  Chamanjyot Singh 21, of Brampton have been charged with extortion, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.

On Monday, May 3, 2021, an 80-year-old female victim received a call from a suspect claiming to be from the CRA. The victim was instructed to attend a bank and withdraw $10,000, in two $5,000 increments, then send the money by courier to a Brampton address.  The victim was told she would be arrested if she didn’t pay.

On May 4, 2021, investigators intercepted the package and monitored the delivery location in Brampton, where it was scheduled to be picked up by the suspect. At approximately 1:20 p.m., the suspect arrived to pick up the package and he was taken into custody.

Through the investigation officers determined that two additional suspects were involved. They were both located and have been charged.

Thanks to the diligent efforts of the investigators, the victim’s money was recovered and officers were able to return it to her.

The three accused are scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Newmarket on Thursday, June 10, 2021.
